Cereal Science and Technology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Wheat Gluten
Protein Analysis

edited by Peter R. Shewry

Wheat Gluten Protein Analysis provides proven, hands-on methods for analyzing wheat gluten proteins.

Wheat Gluten Protein Analysis also details the gluten protein complex, provides application and chemistry information and defines the separation of the gluten complex into monomeric and polymeric proteins. Designed especially for laboratory use, this guide will help food scientists achieve a higher degree of accuracy.

The book is divided into chapters by technique, each written by international experts in their fields. The chapters describe in understandable language how to extract, analyze and/or characterize each gluten protein by that technique.
